Wu Lyf – Clwb Ifor Bach // 9th June 2011

Love them or hate them musically, Wu Lyf are an interesting band. Starting out as a bunch on anon’s from Manchester riding on a massive wave of web-hype, they’ve merged into a less anonymous, Zane Lowe-endorsed, Sydney Opera House-gigged, church-recorded ‘thing’ with odd shouty/chanty vocals, reverberating drums, and big, big songs. Like we said, interesting… Support comes from their worldly folky tour buddies Family.

Six Organs Of Admittance - Komedia // 11th June 2011

Essentially the work of one man – the ever prolific Ben Chasny, also the man behind Magik Markers and Comets On Fire – Six Organs Of Admittance make psychedelic folk music of the highest order. With over 12 albums under his belt as SOOA, Ben’s latest, Asleep On The Floodplain was received positively by the press, and described by The Quietus as “43 minutes of highly creative and often beautiful music”. Be there, or be a fou-sided triangle.
